I grew up in Atlanta and moved back to the city to be near family after completing my residency training. I have been practicing in the Atlanta area since 2002, and I was very excited to join Kaiser Permanente in 2017. My family consists of my wonderful husband, our three children and our turtle. I have always wanted to practice medicine. I am a loving and compassionate person, and family medicine seemed like the natural choice for me. I love speaking and connecting with our members. I especially like getting to know people and trying to get to the root of their health problem.
In the Adult Medicine Department, we take care of your primary care needs. I see members for physicals, PAPs, diabetic care, hypertension, asthma management, joint injections, colds and flu, just to name a few. I try to listen to our members and really hear what they have to say, as I believe that you know your body better than anyone else. I am compassionate and empathetic. I always keep an open mind and I do not judge.
I spend most of my free time with family. I enjoy riding bikes, swimming or going to the park with my husband and kids. I love catching up at the end of the day with my kids. As they are growing up, they have such interesting perspectives on life, politics and the world. I exercise regularly and participate in community service. I find that it is very important to stay positive in life.
